The Northland Arboretum is a member-supported non-profit organization that encompasses over 400 acres in the heart of Brainerd/Baxter, Minnesota.

Today we talked with Northland Arboretum's Executive Director Candice Zimmerman about the upcoming events at the Arb - including this Saturday's Santa visit and the Sertoma Winter Wonderland Wednesdays through Saturdays in December, plus the full week after Christmas. It’s a drive-thru holiday light display from 5:30-8:30. Advance tickets are available at Northland Arboretum.
